promises that we can't keep, but we must keep the promises we've lard made. [applause] >> obama: to hit the rest of our testify sit-reduction target we should to what leaders in both parties have already suggested. and save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and tax deductions for the well-connected. after all why would we choose to make deeper cuts to medicare just for tax breaks. how is that fair? deficit reduction is a big emergency justifying making cuts in social security benefits but not closing some loopholes. how does that promote growth? [applause] now is our best chance. for bipartisan comprehensive tax reform that encourages job creation and helps bring town the testify sit. --the deficit.

back on capitol hill. president obama meanwhile welcomed the nation's governors to the white house. but is anybody looking for a real compromise that will avoid the chaos scheduled to hit this friday? our search for answers begins with our national political correspondent jim acosta. what's the latest, jim? >> reporter: wolf, if anything, both sides sound like they are digging in. the white house is accusing republicans of putting schools and the health of young children at risk. meanwhile, the republicans are accusing the obama administration of trying to scare people. >> welcome, everybody. >> reporter: speaking to a meeting of the nation's governors, president obama said if congress wants to stop those forced spending cuts that start going into effect at the end of the week, lawmakers better do something about it. >> these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off anytime with just a little bit of compromise. >> reporter: to get congress in the spirit of compromise, the white house is warning what's about to be cut on a state by state level. 1,200 teacher and aide j

with the device and consent language of the conversation. the language says that president obama gets to pick his team exempt in extraordinary circumstances. and the extraordinary circumstances are not met here. john mccain said that chuck hagel would be a great member of cabinet. he spoke of chuck hagel as a tremendous secretary of state. >> political betrayal is a worse sin than being a member of the opposing party, so you have john mccain in the hearing really going after chuck hagel, especially after iraq and the sunshine. but then you have a committee hearing and the new senator from texas, cruz, goes after chuck hagel where then john mccain defends him. it's baffling, it's like we're in a sort of upside down tonka toy world. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. >> senator hagel is an honorable man, he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> john mccain or roy blount are critical here if they don'

, and they have at the most popular politician in the country behind their back. president obama said he is ready to work with them. notably he and former president bill clinton had become more eager to get ahead, more progressive, vs senate democrats. you've got to be ready to compromise a little bit with the other elements of congress in the coming months. you are going to have defections when it comes to gun control, immigration, and what we may have to do with a fiscal policy. host: you touch on that point, an unlikely ally for house democrats, the speaker of the house, john boehner. guest: that is something that many democrats have pointed out. he made -- he may need them to get some of these bills passed. as he did with the debt ceiling vote. as he did with the bill for hurricane sandy victims. as it came with the fiscal cliff agreement. i see that as a possibility with a gun control and immigration, because while republicans cannot be eager and willing to discuss the issues, pulling suggest that the house may have to pass something. i will meet democrats. host: -- they will need democrats.
jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the president said, "the question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small but whether it works, whether it helps families finds a job at a decent wage, care they can afford or retirement that is dignified." what we have seen from this president is reckless spending and a heavy hand in regulation. at the time of the president's first inauguration, the unemployment rate was 7.8%. at the time of his second inauguration, it was exactly the same and this month unemployment rose to 7.9%. while the rate of unemployment has been mostly stagnant, the national debt has not. in the past four years of failed obama policies, the nation has added $6 trillion of new debt onto the backs of citizens and businesses. today our national debt stands at $16.4 trillion, broken down by american citizens, that's $52,210 for every man, woman and child in this country. we must get back on the right track and bring optimism into busines

in the house gop is drafting a plan to give president obama disk -- discretion on these cuts. guest: right, we have heard the same from senate republicans. the argument from republicans, with this discretion matter, which has been floating around over the last week or two, is to say that the administration has been saying that the way the law was worded to set up a sequestration, they have a very limited flexibility in how they can implement it. they have to take furloughs in lots of places that would seem to be mission critical. secretary lahood is talking about shutting down air traffic control towers at smaller airports there will be long waits at psa -- at tsa with fewer screeners. what republicans in both chambers are trying to do is perhaps come up with some way to be able to give the administration more flexibility, which is also perhaps politically useful, because there is this whole notion of firing first, where they put cuts in affect and tout cuts in places where people will feel them. there was some reporting last night about people in immigration detention centers perhaps being le
